Wear 2.0 has finally been released. OTA is rolling out.

Cheers, Matt.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Yes installed this morning as well. Big battery drop until I turned the WiFi off. Changed Gestures and what the home button does taking a bit of getting used to. Funny that my watch has Google Assistant but my phone (S6) is still waiting.
Apps definitely more laggy than previously, but will play with some settings in the coming days.
Using this to assess whether my next smartwatch will be Android Wear or Samsung Gear.

Areas of Geek interest: Home Theatre, HTPC, Android Tablets & Phones, iProducts.

My 6-year old found out there are now games available on the watch.  Now she keeps stealing my watch from its cradle while charging.

Just advising that my LG G watch upgraded and as mentioned it was very laggy. Did some googling and it was suggested that I remove the Android wear app from phone and disable the connection between phone and watch, reset watch and reinstall. In this process I realised that the Android wear app was not the full version 2 so when reinstalling I made sure it was the new version. Added the watch in and all was sweet. I have not managed to switch the OK Google back on and was having trouble sending text from watch I use chomp SMS which did not seem to be recognised. Switched back to Google app and it was OK but still no OK google. I cannot send text message by voice watch is completely dumb for voice. Will keep researching
